This Ph.D. thesis presents the qualitative and quantitative consequences of full-scale measurements on two daylighting systems, light shelf and Venetian blinds. The systems were investigated to assess their ability to increase daylight penetration and improve daylight distribution in the interior, aiming at increased utili sation of daylight in order to supplement and replace artificial lighting. The visual quality is assessed only by subjective evalua tions of the luminous environment, luminance distributions in the interior and glare problems. This thesis does not pretend to answer or solve all the benefits and difficulties regarding use of daylight in office buildings, but it is hoped that the report will provide daylight conscious building design in forthcoming non-domestic buil dings.
